How much should you feed pigs?
Pigs will not overeat. They are smarter than the human omnivores in this way!
A 40 pound pig, around 8 weeks of age, should be getting 1 – 1 1/2 pounds of 17-18 % protein in a pelleted starter grower feed, per day.
At around 75 pounds, 12 weeks of age, up the feed to 2 1/2 – 3 pounds of 15% protein feed mix.
At 125 pounds, or 16 weeks, up the feed to 4 – 5 pounds of the same feed per day.
We feed our pigs with the best nutritional food.
And of course with fresh and clean water from our deepwell.
What vegetables do the pigs eat?
Almost any vegetable you can grow is suitable for a pig.
Farmers have to know a lot about pigs to make a healthy pig diet.
A diet is the combination of foods that a pig eats to stay healthy and grow.
